. mitt romney out of nowhere it seems, major address today on american foreign policy. take a listen. >> the president is fond of saying that the tide of war is receding. i want to believe him as much as anyone else. when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability, with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region and with violent extremists on the march, and with an american ambassador and three others dead, likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates, it is clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> so we'll hit the speech in depth here a lot on the middle east. but first, let me give you the big picture. as we mentioned, four weeks until the election, and we are seeing a possible shift in favor of mitt romney. check this out. this is what has happened since that debate last wednesday. this is gallup's daily tracking poll. a dead heat here when you look at the different numbers, a dead heat for the race for president, down from the five-point advantage for the pres

as a major address on foreign policy and to try out some new fear-flavored zingers focused on the middle east. >> it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer, and more prosperous middle east allied with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. >> but even after today's tenth major foreign policy address by mr. romney, questions remain about how he would conduct american policy toward the rest of the world. how about libya? >> in the libya i'll support the libyan people's efforts to forge a lasting government that represents all of them, and i'll vigorously pursue the terrorists who attacked our consulate in benghazi and killed our fellow americans. >> okay. now that he's both favored and deposed intervention in libya, he'll defiantly claim his position is exactly the same as the president. great. how about iran? >> i'll put the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and our friends and allies will prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. >> i wish someone

to the campaign trail with 29 days left to go in the the election. mitt romney delivers a major foreign policy speech in virginia today after spending the weekend drawing huge crowds in florida, and president obama is in california where last night he poked fun at his lack luster debate performance last week. he gave a nod to the performance at a star-studded event included stevie wonder and katy perry. >> they perform flawlessly night after night. i can't always say the same. >> the president is expected to raise more than $9 million during his two-day swing through california. >> and mitt romney has a big day. expected to elaborate a little more on his foreign policy, and he will speak to fill in more details as to that plan that he laid out a couple weeks ago, but that's going to happen around 11:00 eastern. >> and only 29 days left to go. but you have to wonder, too, with the 67 million people watching that debate, the race has gotten fighter and it's a fight to the finish. two weeks ago it was looking bad and bleak for romney and it is amazing how the wind has changed and romney has the w

romney is spending the day in virginia where he's set to deliver a major foreign policy speech at the virginia military institute and later he'll attend a rally at "newport news." he drew some of the largest crowds of his campaign. >>> and this week, of course, it is the vice-presidential candidates' turn to face off. one on one the candidates debate. the debate takes place thursday night. our team will be live for the debate and our own martha raddatz will be moderating the event. it all begins at 9:00 p.m. eastern right here on abc. >> now you think the pressure will be on biden even more so to try to compensate for the lack of performance of the president in last week's debate, and this will really be paul ryan's first big debate, and it's kind of like the old guard against the new guard. >> and i think the pressure is mutual. biden, who's gaffe-prone has to be careful he's not going to affect the headlines. paul ryan has to feel a little bit of the pressure that he has to come out swinging and be just as ready for the white house as romney did last week. it should be intere
than a month to go before the election, and the focus is once again on foreign policy. today republican nominee mitt romney will be back in the commonwealth where he'll delivery an address at the virginia military institute. meanwhile, the president is in california. >> reporter: election day is four weeks from tomorrow. look at some of the polls. within the margin of error in this poll in four key swing states, including a state that will get a lot of attention today, and that is virginia. the president made a return appearance to california last night. not because the state is in play this year, but because hollywood has heavy hitters with deep pockets. >> the last thing we can afford right now is four years of the very same policies that led us to this crisis in the first place. i cannot allow that to happen. i will not let it happen. >> reporter: mitt romney, meantime, prepares to pivot to foreign policy today. that's what an upcoming debate will focus on, and it may be an effort to strike while the iron is hot, with questions about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya last mon

[indiscernible] i don't think a whole lot. it certainly did not change the fundamentals of this race. $2 trillion pentagon build up. he has an implausible plan that will punish the middle class in this country and retard growth. >> some of the papers have already put out their editorials for tomorrow's paper based on tonight's debate. this is the tampa bay times from florida. the star tribune out of minnesota, this is what the editors right. this is craig from illinois on the independent line. >> i would like to remind everybody who is undecided or disk that dig or dissat
in the second inning of a long, long ball game. >> when it gets to the foreign policy debate which is the last one, lots to discuss there, obviously, syria, also libya with ambassador stevens. but an interesting interview with john mccain. he's saying he's damned if he's going to give up freedom of speech because it may possibly offend the prophet muhammed. what do you make of that? >> well, he's certainly right on that. there's going to be no disagreement there. i think that the republicans are increasingly going to focus on what happened in libya, why there wasn't better security for ambassador stevens, and i think that's a legitimate area to poke on. i do think it's kind of small bore. this is not something the president is deciding on, the security in benghazi. i think that also, while obama has his failures in foreign policy, they are not ones that romney can easily pick up on. >> he could always, i would knowledge ma, imagine, in a debate turn on i killed osama bin laden. that is an undisputable vote winner for the american public. >> one of my friends on facebook was joking that he shou
; that they have let trade be a handmaiden for their foreign policy objectives of the country; that this country has exported too many jobs and not enough products. and as i worked to pass a trade bill through the united states senate, they threw roadblocks in the way every step of the way. but we passed a trade bill that has this premise, that any country that has full access to our markets, we're entitled to full access to their markets. now, that means that we're going to stand tough for america, and we're going to protect those jobs, and we're going to push american products, and we're going to open up markets around the world. we'll show leadership in that respect, and turn this deficit and trade around. that's the sort of thing that michael dukakis and i will do to bring about a better america for all our people. >> senator quayle, a minute to respond. >> as you notice, senator bentsen didn't tell you very much about what gov. dukakis would do gov. dukakis, one of the most liberal governors in the united states of america -- the one thing he tried to point out about gov. dukakis is that he
looking ahead to the debate on foreign policy? it's not something governor romney has been having a lot of experience in. and any thought on that one? >> well, there is a target rich environment. the president has a dismal record there. tonight talking about domestic policy hard for the president to defend his position there's is a record which makes it very difficult for him to defend. looking at the cost of gasoline which is double. health care, up 30% and college tuition up 35%. incomes having gone down z there is a shift there is a same set circumstances there is tumult in places like the middle east and a president whose policies are perceived around the world as weak and ineffective. and this is an area people might perceive governor romney not as experienced in i think he has a great opportunity to make foreign policy decisions. >> up next our famous political panel who. did they think put more points on the board? you have to hear what they very v.to say, and you will, they're next. >> my plan has five parts. one gives us energy independence. and that creates about four million
thought. gretchen, tell us what is happening. the middle east is in flames. >> gretchen: foreign policy did not come up last night it was not part of the schedule. maybe they will talk about it next time. this is what happened last night. turkey firing rounds in syria. this is the second straight day. ♪ it comes one day after a shell inside of syria landded on a home in turkey leaving a mom, three daughters and another woman dead. syria later offered condollences. now a deadly form of menigitus leaving four people dead in five states. that number could grow. it is believed that a steroid injected for back pain started the outbreak. it could affect anyone receiving the injection. the massachusetts pharmacy that makes the injection recalling three lots of the drug. >> 1980 spy film. a rushiann-born businessman a secret agent. alexander fushenko will be in court charged with shipping the parts from houston to new york and russia. they include missile guidance systems and detonation systems. russia denying the spy agencies were involved. >> if you are a -- yourr presidential cand date doe
of issues that i was interested in. nobody mentioned anything about foreign policy, which i consider my number one issue. for that reason, i have not picked a party this year. i was a democrat in my younger days. i agreed with our social values. however, in getting more experienced, i understood that you cannot run a country only on taxing the people. you have to have a system that is going to produce wealth at only consume wealth. i became a republican. i have great difficulty with the republicans as well as the foreigns' focus on policy. i do not like war. i don't think we have any business being in the middle east. i follow the persuasions of ron paul but that went nowhere. obama came across last night like a college professor. he was very didactic. you could almost see him shaking his finger at the graduates whose minds would be so easily swayed. didn't work with mitt romney and an intelligence audience. i agree jim lehrer did not enforce any time limits. why do two intelligent people need a moderator like that? they should follow their own rules. host: just how the candidates out t
